Jannik Sinner let the results speak for themselves and won his 9th title of his career, winning the China Open, silencing once and for all those who have criticized him in recent weeks. A truly incredible tournament from the Italian, who was able to eliminate the first and second seeds in the draw, Carlos Alcaraz and Daniil Medvedev, to obtain number 4 in the ATP world ranking.
After the competition in China - with his mind a little turned towards the ATP Master 1000 in Shanghai which will begin for him on Saturday - Sinner decided to break the silence and give an interesting interview to the Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera.
Among the topics touched on, he also talked about the Davis Cup, revealing an important update: "I don't know if I want to talk about this. I'm happy with how I trained after the US Open.
It's not like you can invent it in two weeks nothing, but the work was there even if you don't see it: very long days, between the field and the gym, I only feel good if at the end I'm dead tired, because it means that I trained in the right way.
Winning a tournament It doesn't change your life but it validates the goodness of what you do.
I'll be there in Malaga. I like the size of the team, that feeling of Italy with the blue shirt. We have a long bench and many different choices even for the doubles.
Cup can be won."
Sinner talked about the China Open
There are many difficulties faced by Sinner during the week: "The first two days in China I didn't feel well at all, then the problems with Evans, a little better with Nishioka, the vomiting with Dimitrov.
I was able to overcome the problems, with Alcaraz and Medvedev I was finally fine. I learned from my mistakes and I liked it."
Jannik then went into detail about the match: "At Flushing Meadows and before, when I won the Master 1000 in Toronto and immediately after I went out in the first round in Cincinnati.
It is important for me not to repeat them. In Shanghai I will try to win at least one match." If Sinner were to beat Giron at the Rolex Shanghai Masters, the Italian tennis player would obtain mathematical qualification for the Nitto ATP Finals.
